Salvatore and Ed Greenwood, a few starter kits, and then a few Monster Manuals. Where do you get them from? Is there a store that you would recomend?

==Yugoloths as Demons==
  +
Hi Pharuan.
  +
  +
A lot of the articles you've been doing for creatures from the new [[Demonomicon]] such as [[Piscodemon]] are creatures that used to be known as [[Yugoloth]]s. Their major interactions with the Realms have all been from when they were termed as such. I was wondering if you had any ideas about how to link existing yugoloth pages with their new demon terminology.

:Only thing I see that we can do to try and orginaise this is add them to the [[Yugoloth]] demon section, I mean, really some of the demons I was editing were already on here and are termed [[Tanar'ri]], and unless this can be done for the others I've done I really am lost. I guess the only thing is to add them to the [[Yugoloth]]s page but it's weird how most of them end in "oth" though, :-).[[User:Pharuan Undearth|Pharuan Undearth]] 02:30, May 21, 2011 (UTC)

In 4th edition, they were given the -demon suffix, recategorized as demons, and dumped into the Abyss (their plane, the [[Blood Rift]], crashed into the Abyss after the [[Spellplague]]). Since third-edition lore still holds in the Forgotten Realms, though (since the Spellplague was a Realms-shaking event, not a retcon), they're still yugoloths and should still be tagged as such.

:Well my firend thank you for the compliment, like i mentioned before to another friend about dragons the same here most of my "sources" are marked as pdf's which are easier to move around, 100-1000 books in one had, but are harder to open, i.e. need a pdf reader or computer. I've gotten them from 2-4 websites, now most will recomend signing up to the wizarsd website which you can get all this for free from there after a small $9 investment or you can be illegal and cheap like me. :-) ''4shared'' is one of the best sites ''filestube'' or ''filetube'' forget which one is going to be your second choice. Now this is techincally not illegal, ~glares at the mods~, as in I'm not gaining anything from adding the info from the pages other then a sense of fullfillment, '''SO IT'S NOT ILLEGAL'''. oh and use 4 tildas ~ to sign stuff.

:No i didn't draw them, Markustay did and no i also didn't upload them unless your talking about the ones used on the wiki if so Markustay is the main artist and the others were from various sites, reference materials, and sourcebooks.

==Understand==

I do not understand this, I was looking into the nine realms and came across this page and I'm wondering what this is about. I have a few questions that maybe you can answer for me really quick, 1: the artwork I saw on the first page, the cover I assume, is it drawn by you where your name is or is it copied from somewhere? 2: is this a game of sorts, I remember D&D from back in the day but I never had the time to figure it out or the patients and I didn't think anyone even played it anymore or remembered it, are y'all playing a type of game like D&D or is it D&D? 3: how many people are involved in this?
  +
  +
Thats it for now, if you could help me w/this I'd really appreciate it and I really love some of the art work I've seen, totally tits, I like a couple and thinking of getting another tattoo but now need to figure out which one to get. I'm an old man still w/a kids heart and love to watch the new cartoons and anime programs and if this is what I think it is I'll be watching and checking this out also.

Thanks for your time,

:Dude its all right this Site is all about Forgotten Realms (i.e. [[Drizzt Do'Urden]]'s home, [[Cadderly Bonaduce]]'s home). It is a branch of D&D lore and mythology but FR specific. I would recomend that you just explore people pages look at different creastures and what not, to see what i mean D&D is here but only if it crosses with the FR world.
  +
  +
:As for your questions: 1) no I haven't made the art work but i know some of the people who have. If my name is by it, it probably means i uploaded the artwork on this site. 2)Not really a game but you can make it a module for D&D based gameplay, yeah a lot more people remeber it and some here are the children of such people, my father was a musican(rock) not a D&D player though. 3) How many....hmm...Millions, would be a safe guess not including people like me who just read the books and lore, and edit the site. Use whatever artwork you want. If you do edit or ask questions just sign your stuff with 4 ~(tildas) and it tell who and when it was made.

==Images==
  +
It is standard to ''not'' use the thumbnail setting for images in infoboxes. This is because it creates an extra box around the image. In addition, who uploaded the image is unimportant. We don't sign our user names on articles we write. Why should we display our names beneath images we add to pages? Anyone can see who uploaded the image if they simply click on it. If you take a look around this wiki, you will find all other images in infoboxes which you have not edited do not use the thumbnail setting. Pretty much all wikis do the same, including Wikipedia. <span style="font-family: Unicode; font-size: 20pt;">➳</span><span style="font-family: Times New Roman;">[[User:Quinsareth|Quin]]</span> 20:52, June 28, 2011 (UTC)

:P.S.: I also notice when I edit theres a statement which can only be seen when the thumb template is used which btw if its not standard why create it, and if you don't use it then we don't need it. Think about it. [[User:Pharuan Undearth|Pharuan Undearth]] 20:37, June 30, 2011 (UTC)

Come on dude wtf is Pageno? ‎who the hell is going to write that seriously. oh and yes i am new about feb 9 is the day i created this user and ive been on the site about 3 yrs. though. doing minor edits nothing to warent making a user then i started reading the books and wa-laa a purpose to make an account.

No one will look up [[War of the Spider Queen]] or any book by putting the authors in front of it, the others i can see, plus anyone whos looking for [[Ed Greenwood]] is not going to look him up by a name he gave himself in a singel line in one book. I'm just trying to make the wiki cleaner by not have unnessusary redirects that literally are redirected from an alternate spelling like capitalization.
  +
As a friend,[[User:Pharuan Undearth|Pharuan Undearth]] 06:25, June 28, 2011 (UTC)

  +
: I agree. However, if you look at any of the cover art for the novels in the series ([[Dissolution]], for example), you'll notice that they each have the words "R.A. Salvatore's War of the Spider Queen" in the name. While it's commonly referred to as "War of the Spider Queen", we can't assume that new users will shorten it. As for Ed Greenwood novels, I point you to [[Waterdeep (series)]], whose proper name is "Ed Greenwood Presents Waterdeep", which we also provide a redirect from.

:People may not necessarily type those into Google, but I have seen editors, particularly new users, create such similar links in articles.

Is there a particular reason you're editing so many users' pages?

Oh and thanks for consently updateing the wiki especially the pictures b.t.w where do you find them at ?(probly google images but i'm too lazy to check)8) Waffleferret 07:30, June 13, 2011 (UTC)

Well my firend thank you for the compliment, like i mentioned before to another friend about dragons the same here most of my "sources" are marked as pdf's which are easier to move around, 100-1000 books in one had, but are harder to open, i.e. need a pdf reader or computer. I've gotten them from 2-4 websites, now most will recomend signing up to the wizarsd website which you can get all this for free from there after a small $9 investment or you can be illegal and cheap like me. :-) 4shared is one of the best sites filestube or filetube forget which one is going to be your second choice. Now this is techincally not illegal, ~glares at the mods~, as in I'm not gaining anything from adding the info from the pages other then a sense of fullfillment, SO IT'S NOT ILLEGAL. oh and use 4 tildas ~ to sign stuff.

oh and BTW if you want or need any maps one of the best places to go is Markustay on deviant art hes has some of the most accurate maps out there most are even better than wizard heres his site [1]Pharuan Undearth 04:43, June 14, 2011 (UTC)

CAPSLOCK CRAZY

HEY THOSE PICTURES THAT YOU UPLOAD, DO YOU DRAW THEM YOURSELF? IF SO WITH WHAT? Bamhs123 21:12, June 17, 2011 (UTC)

No i didn't draw them, Markustay did and no i also didn't upload them unless your talking about the ones used on the wiki if so Markustay is the main artist and the others were from various sites, reference materials, and sourcebooks. The answer to your third question, you would have to ask each artist what they used when they drew the pictures.Pharuan Undearth 06:01, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

uploaded image

Thanks for the better quality image. Moviesign 19:04, June 23, 2011 (UTC)

Just wanted to make sure that it was a bit clearer. I also saw that you used the medium poster so i added the large one. NP btw hope i didn't step on your toes. Pharuan Undearth 19:13, June 23, 2011 (UTC)
It's all good. Moviesign 19:18, June 23, 2011 (UTC)

Understand

I do not understand this, I was looking into the nine realms and came across this page and I'm wondering what this is about. I have a few questions that maybe you can answer for me really quick, 1: the artwork I saw on the first page, the cover I assume, is it drawn by you where your name is or is it copied from somewhere? 2: is this a game of sorts, I remember D&D from back in the day but I never had the time to figure it out or the patients and I didn't think anyone even played it anymore or remembered it, are y'all playing a type of game like D&D or is it D&D? 3: how many people are involved in this?

Thats it for now, if you could help me w/this I'd really appreciate it and I really love some of the art work I've seen, totally tits, I like a couple and thinking of getting another tattoo but now need to figure out which one to get. I'm an old man still w/a kids heart and love to watch the new cartoons and anime programs and if this is what I think it is I'll be watching and checking this out also. Thanks for your time, Joe Whiteknight200 21:36, June 26, 2011 (UTC)

Dude its all right this Site is all about Forgotten Realms (i.e. Drizzt Do'Urden's home, Cadderly Bonaduce's home). It is a branch of D&D lore and mythology but FR specific. I would recomend that you just explore people pages look at different creastures and what not, to see what i mean D&D is here but only if it crosses with the FR world.
As for your questions: 1) no I haven't made the art work but i know some of the people who have. If my name is by it, it probably means i uploaded the artwork on this site. 2)Not really a game but you can make it a module for D&D based gameplay, yeah a lot more people remeber it and some here are the children of such people, my father was a musican(rock) not a D&D player though. 3) How many....hmm...Millions, would be a safe guess not including people like me who just read the books and lore, and edit the site. Use whatever artwork you want. If you do edit or ask questions just sign your stuff with 4 ~(tildas) and it tell who and when it was made. Pharuan Undearth 01:31, June 27, 2011 (UTC)

Cool, thanks allot, I'm gonna take a look threw this it looks tits and the pics are the bomb. I'll read the paes and see if I can catch on, thanks again. Whiteknight200 15:45, July 03, 2011 (UTC)

Images

It is standard to not use the thumbnail setting for images in infoboxes. This is because it creates an extra box around the image. In addition, who uploaded the image is unimportant. We don't sign our user names on articles we write. Why should we display our names beneath images we add to pages? Anyone can see who uploaded the image if they simply click on it. If you take a look around this wiki, you will find all other images in infoboxes which you have not edited do not use the thumbnail setting. Pretty much all wikis do the same, including Wikipedia. Quin 20:52, June 28, 2011 (UTC)

Yes yes flamer, i get it i do though like to know who added the pic #1 and #2 some pics are deleted for one reason or another id like to know why especially if theres a real pic and its the only one do you delete it. Pharuan Undearth 03:16, June 29, 2011 (UTC)
P.S.: I also notice when I edit theres a statement which can only be seen when the thumb template is used which btw if its not standard why create it, and if you don't use it then we don't need it. Think about it. Pharuan Undearth 20:37, June 30, 2011 (UTC)

Redirects

It is rather silly going through my contributions and tagging all redirects I have created for deletion, no? I see you are a relatively new user. Please try to familiarize yourself with collaborative editing instead of tagging all pages created by someone with whom you have a minor disagreement for deletion. Quin 21:02, June 28, 2011 (UTC)

Well it is reather silly to have 3-5 redirect to the same page by lower casing or capitalizing the beinning letter of the word(s). I really don't care if you change something of mine you have the right to do so especially being an admin, but that doesn't mean you have the right to have false pages. Come on dude wtf is Pageno? ‎who the hell is going to write that seriously. oh and yes i am new about feb 9 is the day i created this user and ive been on the site about 3 yrs. though. doing minor edits nothing to warent making a user then i started reading the books and wa-laa a purpose to make an account. Anyway it doesn't matter i don't hate you just a bit pissed but i'll get over it, and now seriously you redirected -400 DR to -400 DR i don't know how but you did. Pharuan Undearth 03:14, June 29, 2011 (UTC)

dude...

No one will look up War of the Spider Queen or any book by putting the authors in front of it, the others i can see, plus anyone whos looking for Ed Greenwood is not going to look him up by a name he gave himself in a singel line in one book. I'm just trying to make the wiki cleaner by not have unnessusary redirects that literally are redirected from an alternate spelling like capitalization. As a friend,Pharuan Undearth 06:25, June 28, 2011 (UTC)

I agree. However, if you look at any of the cover art for the novels in the series (Dissolution, for example), you'll notice that they each have the words "R.A. Salvatore's War of the Spider Queen" in the name. While it's commonly referred to as "War of the Spider Queen", we can't assume that new users will shorten it. As for Ed Greenwood novels, I point you to Waterdeep (series), whose proper name is "Ed Greenwood Presents Waterdeep", which we also provide a redirect from. Cronje (talkcontribs) 07:24, June 28, 2011 (UTC)
People may not necessarily type those into Google, but I have seen editors, particularly new users, create such similar links in articles. I would think it better to have a link redirect to the proper article than it to be a red link. And how does removing redirects make the wiki cleaner? Quin 21:20, June 28, 2011 (UTC)
by not having some random ass page pop up i like to do the random page thing every so often to just read or edit. I find the redirect annoying if i happens 4 times in a row. Just saying. Pharuan Undearth 03:21, June 29, 2011 (UTC)
Understandable. I find it a bit annoying when I get six or seven year pages in a row myself. Still, this is a huge wiki, with over 10,000 pages and at least a thousand redirects. It's bound to happen. Cronje (talkcontribs) 03:28, June 29, 2011 (UTC)
I'm not sure what you mean by a random pop-up (some New Look feature? I use Monobook), but Special:Random doesn't generate any redirects. Quin 18:10, June 29, 2011 (UTC)
I think he just means the Random page feature. Cronje (talkcontribs) 18:38, June 29, 2011 (UTC)
Random page feature exactly.Pharuan Undearth 20:05, June 30, 2011 (UTC)

thumbs...

Ok then i understand it might not be the standard but if it has a statement it needs the thumb E.x.- Image:Moo.png|300px|thumb|It's a cow . The cow statement will not be visible unless thumb is used. This is the only arguement i have as of now to use it i don't mind you deleting the thumb if there no statement but of if it has one leave it alone please. Pharuan Undearth 08:07, July 2, 2011 (UTC)


Editing User Pages

Is there a particular reason you're editing so many users' pages? It appears you're trying to populate the Forgotten Realms Wiki members category, but that's unnecessary. Special:ListUsers contains a complete list of members, along with other information. Also, some might not appreciate someone - even an admin - fiddling with their profile pages. Cronje (talkcontribs) 06:04, July 7, 2011 (UTC)

Response: Well true, some may not, but i didn't see the user list till later that night #1, and #2 i do think that the admins should at least have the member page added(admin tag) so that any user who wishs to speak to an admin for whatever reason should have the widest range of users to contact as possible. If this is against the wikia policy i am sorry, and i will stop imediately. Pharuan Undearth 22:48, July 7, 2011 (UTC)
I agree with the thing about admins being more visible :P Mpj 00:28, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
As far as I can tell, it isn't, and I'm sorry of I implied otherwise. I just didn't want you to have to spend hours at something potentially unnecessary. Cronje (talkcontribs) 07:46, July 8, 2011 (UTC)
No need to apologise I can see where your coming from. Just when i see a red name i like what happened, first thing i tried to do is find a user page i can "copy". but i did some editing to pass the time as i explored the site. Thank you guys again for the fast responses. Pharuan Undearth 21:41, July 9, 2011 (UTC)

Picture...

why did you remove your profile picture i thought it was a good thing, i mean you like drow and Drizzt is the most famous 1 so why not. Pharuan Undearth 07:07, July 31, 2011 (UTC)

Oh, I just thought it was kind of out of place. I might put it back in a more organized fashion, like with some others. I actually put it there on accident when I first made my page.--Drow2626 07:57, July 31, 2011 (UTC)
Ah no problem just wanted to see whats up. Oh btw good job on continuing the edits for the dragon pages the adding of the Known dragons was my next step after i read some books and stuff. So, thanks. Pharuan Undearth 07:50, August 6, 2011 (UTC)
